Poverty. Conflict. Disaster. These are the global challenges that Mercy Corps has been responding to since 1979, helping more than 170 million people survive emergencies and build back better.
When a natural disaster strikes, an economy collapses, or conflict erupts, Mercy Corps is there. Mercy Corps responds immediately to meet urgent needs for food, water and shelter, and stay beyond the emergency to partner with communities for their long-term recovery.
Mercy Corps believes even in the world’s most challenging places, people have the power to transform their own lives when they have the right resources. Growing more food, earning higher incomes, advocating for their needs — Mercy Corps leverages their local logic to pioneer innovative, sustainable solutions that build stronger communities. Now, and for the future.
